Product Description

It’s time for some critical thinking! In this blended learning activity, students read “The Beginning of the Armadillo” then check the story’s background information using three kid-friendly websites. They answer questions and evaluate each website on its ability to help them. As culminating activities, students evaluate the accuracy of each story’s background information and rank the websites.

This activity is classroom tested and kid approved. Students love being online fact-checkers.

What’s Included:

  • Lesson plans
  • 4-page adaptation of “The Beginning of the Armadillo” (from Just So Stories by Rudyard Kipling)
  • 4 Check the Facts sheets – Hedgehog, Tortoise, Armadillo, and Jaguar
  • Website** with links to kid-friendly articles
  • Sheet for evaluating the accuracy of the background information
  • Sheet for ranking the websites and listing features of good websites
  • Answers
